The JOY program was founded on these principles:
  • Yoga is an eight-limbed practice of asana, breath, the process of meditation, ethics and philosophy. Our mat is our laboratory and with practice, yoga is something we choose to “be” rather than something we “do.” With regular practice, everyone can transform their health and cultivate a steady sense of JOY.
  • Yoga is for everyone. As you learn to teach, you will learn how to meet people where they are and create an effective, complete and inclusive yogic experience.
  • Yoga is a both a science and an art. It is a mental, physical, emotional and spiritual practice.
  • Yoga changes lives. The JOY of Yoga 200 and 300 hour program is a transformational program. You will leave this program equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to enable those around you to live mindful, healthier lives.

The JOY of Yoga Mission

The JOY of Yoga 200 hour and 300 hour programs give you the opportunity to work with highly regarded medical professionals, scholars of yoga philosophy and Sanskrit, Ayurvedic practitioners and BTY’s highly respected yoga teachers, who are recognized for specializing in particular aspects of the practice. The JOY program represents both Western medical approaches and alternative methods to healthcare, providing insight into both the workings of the human body and the nature of the mind. This program balances an understanding of the roots of yoga with innovative applications of yoga and mindfulness in the modern world. Since the creation of the JOY of Yoga Teacher Training in 2007, this program has been offered locally, nationally and internationally.
